Most recently MacAskil hit .300 for the Hawks, with 14 runs, 12 stolen bases and a 5-2 record on the mound.
"Taylor was sought after by the University of Minnesota Duluth and chose Lakehead to pursue his degree and play ball, and we are very happy to have such a versatile player who will help us in all facets of the game,” LU coach Jason Hart said in a release.
Open tryouts for the team are scheduled on Sept. 8 and 9 at Baseball Central from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m..
Players must be full-time students in possession of a valid passport.
Lakehead’s first games is scheduled for Sept. 29 on the road against Winona State University.
